About Penetron Admix SB

Penetron Admix SB

PENETRON ADMIX SB is identical to our 3rd generation crystalline admixture, but packaged in convenient, pre-measured soluble bags for easy application when adding the product to the new concrete batch. As a quality guarantee, PENETRON ADMIX SB features our unique ‘green tracer’ indicator to signal that genuine PENETRON ADMIX is in the mix.

Once inside the concrete, PENETRON ADMIX SB reduces permeability by permanently sealing micro-cracks, pores and capillaries. This protects the concrete against water penetration and effects of deterioration, even under high hydrostatic pressure. It provides projects with a self-healing capability to reseal cracks that develop during the lifetime of the concrete.

PENETRON ADMIX SB is compatible with all commonly used workability admixtures (e.g. superplasticizers, retarders) and mix design formulations (trial mixes recommended prior to casting).

Penetron Admix SB
PENETRON ADMIX® SB (Soluble Bag integral crystal- line waterproofing admix) is added to the concrete mix at the time of batching. PENETRON ADMIX® SB consists of Portland cement and various active, propri- etary chemicals. These active chemicals react with the moisture in fresh concrete and with the by-products of cement hydration to cause a catalytic reaction, which generates a non-soluble crystalline formation throughout the pores and capillary tracts of the concrete. Thus, the concrete becomes permanently sealed against the penetration of water or liquids from any direction. The concrete is also protected from deterioration due to harsh environmental conditions. PENETRON ADMIX® SB has been specially formulat- ed to meet varying project and temperature condi- tions (see Setting time and strength). Consult with a Penetron technical representative for additional detailed support on your project.
